The founder and conductor of the The Sixteen on his latest release

The conductor Harry Christophers, who founded his choir The Sixteen in 1979, has a full schedule for the ensemble's 40th anniversary year. Their latest release is of Handel's pastoral Acis and Galatea. James Jolly caught up with Harry before a performance of the Monteverdi Vespers at London's Cadogan Hall, one of nine performances The Sixteen are giving this season.

Acis and Galatea is available on the Coro label as a two-CD set, to stream and download.
